    Schooling Matters: Perceptions of Christian church attenders about Australian schooling

    Join us in this webinar to hear the latest findings and reflections on the views of Christian church attenders on Australian schooling. We will explore how schooling matters to churchgoers, what influences choice of schools, the impact of school on their own lives, and their views of spirituality in learning and education.   
    Based on the results from the 2021-22 National Church Life Survey across more than 20 denominations, it provides the most comprehensive picture of church attender attitudes in Australia.

    You will discover :

    • what factors matter the most to church attenders in choosing a school

    • importance of engagement with spirituality in learning and education
